Check card compromised!

Recently I had my check/debit card information stolen. I believe it was scanned at a local gas station. The culprits apparently made a dummy card and used it at a home depot a couple of hundred miles away. I confronted the clerk at the gas station, and she told me several people have complained about it. Luckily I check my accounts every night to make sure there are no fraudulent charges on them. I spotted the transaction right away, and called BOA fraud department. They cancelled my card on the spot. Today I went to the bank and talked to an investigator. They filed my claim and I should be ok. She also told me that they tried to charge more stuff today but was declined. Moral of the story; never use a debit card at a gas station!

That Sucks bro, Good thing you caught it quick. Been happening a lot around here lately. If you do use your card at the gas station go inside and have them scan it at the register.

Cardlock cards for fuel, visa for everything else. If somebody gets my visa account info I get the bill, flag it, get it removed. If somebody gets my debit card info, its a lot harder to get the money back, and cheques or payments can bounce.

That's exactly what the bank investigator told me. I applied for a business credit card. That's the route I will be going.

Got a new business credit card on the way! All the gas stations around here are on high alert. Started putting seals on all the pumps now. If I see somebody screwing around with the pumps, I will beat them senseless.
